The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Have you ever skipped ahead to read the ending?

Ordinarily, no I never do this. When I read for pleasure, I prefer to start at the beginning and read through to the end. I often want to see how a book ends before I’m close to finishing, but I just speed up my reading to get there sooner rather than later instead of skipping ahead.
Just like last week , though, the exception to this is when I was in college. Those were the books I would most likely reread (last week’s discussion) but once I got into my last two years of university, it wasn’t unusual for me to have 3 or 4 lit classes per semester. You can imagine the amount of reading I had to do for just one of those classes not to mention multiple classes. I discovered a little trick for when there wasn’t time to reread was to read the ending first and then I could focus on the technical aspects as I read through from the beginning. That saved me so much time and was very successful for me when it came to writing essays and papers on the works of literature.
